Abhisam Software has released an updated training course on Hazardous Area Instrumentation.
This updated training course covers all aspects of Hazardous Area Instruments and Controls, with changes to the IEC standards and ATEX directives fully reflected in the course contents. The original Hazardous Area Instrumentation training course was very well received by engineers and technicians in oil & gas, chemical and petrochemical processing, shipping and transportation, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals, power and other industries, as also by engineering consultants, contractors, universities and even regulatory authorities. The updated version of this course is even better than the earlier version. Furthermore, the updated version will be available free of cost, to all customers of Abhisam Software who have purchased the earlier version within the past one year.
This new version of the Hazardous Area Instrumentation training course consists of the following six modules:
1. Basic Concepts;
2. Classification (Area Classification, Material Classification and Temperature Classification);

4. Using Fieldbus in hazardous areas (covers entity, FISCO, high power trunk, amongst other topics);
5. Certification and Labeling;
6. Inspection and Maintenance.
Though the module names are the same as the earlier version, the content has been revised to a great extent. The changes in the IEC standards and the ATEX directives have been included in the relevant modules, so that this course is now all that you need to have for becoming a pro, as regards Instrumentation and Control systems in Hazardous Areas.
These modules contain several topic pages containing Flash based animations, actual photographs of hazardous area instruments and equipment, rich graphics and easy to understand text, so that the subject becomes very easy to learn.
